Working with the clients of Mauldin & Jenkins since 1979, Steve has enjoyed assisting clients through challenges and opportunities. Understanding the clients goals and culture has been critical to maintaining good communication and giving clients confidence in their decisions. Having originally served as an audit partner, as clients businesses matured they became more interested in the income tax issues their companies face. Over time Steve’s focus moved to income tax expertise and he served three years on the American institute of Certified Public Accountants state and local taxation resource panel. Many of his clients are in service businesses and professional practices, while he also has significant manufacturing, construction and real estate experience. Prior to joining Mauldin & Jenkins, Steve worked for an international construction company and worked overseas. He is a graduate of Auburn University.
